Description

Polymer is an interdisciplinary journal dedicated to publishing innovative and significant advances in Polymer Physics, Chemistry and Technology. We welcome submissions on polymer hybrids, nanocomposites, characterisation and self-assembly. Polymer also publishes work on the technological application of polymers in energy and optoelectronics.

The main scope is covered but not limited to the following core areas:

Polymer Materials
  • Nanocomposites and hybrid nanomaterials
  • Polymer blends, films, fibres, networks and porous materials
Physical Characterization
  • Characterisation, modelling and simulation* of molecular and materials properties in bulk, solution, and thin films
Polymer Engineering
  • Advanced multiscale processing methods
Polymer Synthesis, Modification and Self-assembly
  • Including designer polymer architectures, mechanisms and kinetics, and supramolecular polymerization
Technological Applications
  • Polymers for energy generation and storage
  • Polymer membranes for separation technology
  • Polymers for opto- and microelectronics



  • *Theory and simulation papers should include or reference previously published experimental results.


The scope of Polymer no longer includes the biomedical applications of polymers. We would strongly recommend that authors consider submitting these papers to our excellent sister title European Polymer Journal https://www.journals.elsevier.com/european-polymer-journal
